EUROPE Frontman Joey Tempest - "Maybe One Day This Band Will Amount To Something!"

EUROPE frontman Joey Tempest is featured in a new interview with Norway's Metal Express Radio. An excerpt from the discussion is available below

Q: It's been quite an amazing 18 months or so for Europe as a band following the release of your latest album Last Look At Eden. Do you feel that you are reaching a new peak in your career at the moment?

Tempest: "Definitely a good vibe in the Europe camp at the moment. We're on to something. So NO peak yet. Hell! Maybe one day this band will amount to something!"

Q: Last Look at Eden seems to have really taken off in terms of not only commercial success but also critical acclaim. Why do you think this album has hit the mark a lot more than Secret Society or Start From The Dark which were both musically very strong albums?

Tempest: "Start From The Dark and Secret Society were quite hard work to make. We really wanted to learn our craft properly. Last Look At Eden was more relaxed. We thought....we don't want to have to prove ourselves again, let's just enjoy the ride. That's how exiting rock albums are made."

Q: Do you think you've hit the perfect formula where you've captured the strong hooks of your commercial `80`s material with a classic yet modern Hard Rock edge?

Tempest: "It's just the sound and the writing that came out of the band this particular period. We never try to look for a formula."

Q: I mentioned the critical acclaim that you've received for this album, I see that you've been nominated for album of the year by the UK`s Classic Rock magazine. How does it feel to be nominated for such an award?

Tempest: "It's the coolest thing that's happened to us in a long time. I called everyone up and just screamed down the phone!"

Q: You have some tough competition from the likes of KISS, CHEAP TRICK, SLASH, LYNYRD SKYNYRD and SCORPIONS. If you couldn't vote for yourself, who do you think would be a strong contender to take the award?"

Tempest: "My bet is on Maiden. They're an institution now. Good on 'em."
